United Way Campaign Well Under Way
With a successful September kick-off event behind them, and
more than $35,000 already raised, organizers have the 2004
UBC United Way Campaign well underway.
“Pledge packages were delivered in late September,
and donors have already been generous through their donations
and event participation,” said Stan Auerbach, a sessional
instructor in the faculty of education who is 2004 Campaign
Chair. “One of our goals this year is to raise donor
participation by five per cent so we are on our way to achieving
“Volunteers have really been working hard on campaigns
throughout departments on campus,” Auerbach said. “If
you’re looking for a coffee and donut morning, an international
food fair or a 50/50 draw, you can find one in an area near

available for campus participation.
Upcoming events this month include the annual Land and Building
Services International Food Festival and the UBC-Ritsumeikan
Open House. Visit the website at www.unitedway.ubc.ca
